Serves | 4

Mindfulness Factors | quick & easy | 25 minute meal | plant-based | vegan | dairy-free


2tbsp olive oil

1 brown onion, diced

2 carrots, peeled and diced

1 head of cauliflower, cut into florets, (reserve a couple of cooked ones to garnish)

1 head of broccoli, cut into florets (reserve a couple of cooked ones to garnish)

750ml low sodium vegetable stock

30g vegan Parmesan, cubed

Grandmas Fried bread:

4tbsp olive oil

2 slices of brown bread, crusts cut off, cut into large cubes


Gently heat the oil in a large skillet and sauté the onion for 8 minutes until caramelised (don’t skip this step as it adds loads of flavour). Add the remaining vegetables and fry for 10 minutes. Stir in the stock and cook for a couple of minutes

While the vegetables cook, make grandmas fried bread. Heat the oil in a large frying pan for a few minutes then carefully add the bread and leave to fry for around 3 mins each side. Carefully check after around 2 mins to avoid the bread from catching. Remove from the pan, place on some kitchen paper and set aside

Add the vegetable stew and chease to a blender that accepts hot food or allow to cool. Half fill the blender (care: hot liquids splatter) and whizz for a few minutes until smooth. Repeat as necessary

Ladle into bowls then top with grandmas fried bread, some florets and a drizzle of oil
